In-Person Proctoring Instructions


Let’s talk testing.

Notice: Due to restrictions surrounding COVID-19, the states of Minnesota and South Carolina have determined that you may conduct your qualifying course final examination online with e-proctoring. This new method of completing your exam is temporary due to state regulations. Please see more information here.


At the end of each Pre-Licensing course, we offer a practice exam. You do not need a proctor for this. Our practice exam is here to give you an idea of the kinds of questions you’ll see on the actual final, and to help you identify areas that you need to brush up on before attempting the actual exam. You can re-take the course practice exam as many times as you need to pass, and we have set the passing score to be the same as the actual final exam.



After you complete all the course materials, meet the minimum time requirement, and pass the practice exam, there is a course final exam.
